I ordered a part for my 22 from a company in SoCal. 12.99 for the part, 21.00 for shipping. I called and asked them to put it in a plain envelope and ship it USPS. They told me they only shipped UPS. You can geuss where I told them to stick thier shipping.
I just checked USPS priority mail one ammo can possibly two can be shipped for $14.65 TO ALASKA
The cheapest UPS will do it is 61.80 TO ALASKA
For those that are interested a 50 cal ammo can EMPTY weighs lbs. The dimensions are 12x6x7 (for shipping purposes).
As I said by the time I shipped them to someone they would be over a $20 bill a piece. Now you know.
